When and how did this happen?
When did doctors go from being ‘Next to God’ to maut ke saudagar, as the media is so fond of labelling them?
Hippocratic Oath or Hypocrisy?: Doctors at Crossroads is the author’s journey as a doctor over three decades, from a young medical student to an experienced paediatrician. She has used her experience to highlight serious issues—demanding patients, prescribing of unnecessary investigations, hospitals run like business houses, the role of big pharmaceutical industries and so on from the point of view of both doctors and patients.
The author’s anecdotal style, which includes quotes from her many case studies, will keep the reader turning the pages eagerly till the end.
